7 Movies that encourage kids to break the mold (in the best of ways)

Sing (PG, 2016)

Rosita, a pig housewife with a love of song. Mike, a petty street hustler with a big voice. Meena, an elephant with some beautiful pipes but crippling stage fright. All these characters and many, many more audition for a (somewhat accidentally fraudulent) singing competition, pursuing dreams that are beginning to take shape or have been on hold for years. Few of the characters here are prototypical singing stars, but they have the ability and will to show what they’re made of, no matter what their critics say. While not without its problems, this film encourages young viewers to dream big and to utilize the gifts and talents God gave them. (Singis playing on Netflix.)
